A 47-year-old Independence, MO, man has been charged in the abduction and shooting of a woman in a domestic assault today in Raytown, MO, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Tyrone Johnson, dob: 10/12/1972, faces Kidnapping, Domestic Assault, Armed Criminal Action, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Domestic Assault 2nd, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Tampering With a Physical Evidence.*

According to court records,  about 6 am this morning in Raytown, a Raytown Police reserve corporal was observed by police driving quickly in the police parking lot. The reserve corporal’s personal vehicle had holes in it from gunshots and inside was a shooting victim. At 59th Street and Raytown Trafficway, the corporal saw a vehicle stopped. He saw a woman inside the vehicle. She made a statement, "Get me out of here." He began to take her to Raytown Police headquarters, when a man stepped out of the stalled car and fired shots at the corporal’s vehicle. Later, at Truman Hospital, the woman, who was shot in the leg, told a police detective that she had been in an argument with her boyfriend, the defendant. Earlier, at a Kansas City motel, he had choked her and later forced her into his vehicle after she started to walk away, she stated. Then, at the Raytown intersection he stopped the vehicle after she tried to get out to get into the corporal’s vehicle. The defendant, she stated, warned her he was going to shoot her before he fired shots. The defendant was taken into custody at the motel where the incident began today. He was observed there throwing spent shell casings into a trash can.

Prosecutors requested a $150,000 bond.
